So apparently, even Genuine Scooter doesn't even know what the correct pressure is.

Because there isn't one correct pressure.

That's absolutely true and I couldn't begin to argue that you're wr ...

Just for chuckles, I went to Genuine's website and took a look at the current Buddy 125 Owner's Manual.

I can tell you the current manual is a lot better written/translated than the one from 2008, ...

Yes. The recently replaced rear tire is a Korean-make Shinko SR550 in 3.5x10.

The front tire (the one I believe to be original) is a Maxxis 100/90-10, made in Taiwan.

Interesting information from JettaKinght and tenders, and I thank you.

Since the receipt for the tube predates the new rear tire, I think I will assume that the tube was installed at the rear to st ...

Buddy 150, and the documentation is confusing. Some sources say the proper tires are 3.50x10. Some sources say the proper tires are 100/90-10.

Yes, that's effectively the same size, yet I have one ...

The purpose of this is for what?

If it is to charge/maintain your battery - no.

The charger/maintainers have electronics that "read" the battery levels - pretty sure that all that wiri ...

I poked around here a bit looking for something like this and didn't find it, so I thought I'd share what I did to add a battery charger pigtail to my Buddy 150. Will also apply to a 125, and maybe to ...

GregsBuddy and 350kmi:

Yes, yes, yes. Your insights have been most useful!

First of all, mea culpa on getting the caliper off. I really thought it was dumb to have to remove the rotor to get the ...

First of all, I failed to realize that since this is a single-piston caliper, the inner bad is in an effectively fixed position. ...

This is my first 2-wheeler with a front disc brake, and it feels like the front tire/wheel has a LOT of drag. B ...
